This little lovebug turns SIX today! I can’t believe how tiny he was. He weighed just three pounds when I got him six years ago.
As I walked him tonight, I thought about what I’d write about him. I thought about maybe writing lessons I’ve learned from him or about how my life has changed since I got him, but all that seemed overwrought and unnecessary for a simple little guy.
Happiness. He brings me lots of happiness, and he came into my life at a time when I was depressed and unable to find my own happiness, and he’s been there for all of the highs and lows since then, including before the marathon last year.
Being a single dog owner in NYC is not the easiest, but I wouldn’t trade any of that occasional inconvenience for the world. (And I’m incredibly lucky to have parents nearby who love him and can take care of him for a few days when things get a bit too crazy for me.)
We’ve come a long way from when he broke his little leg as a puppy.
Uh, both of us.
He leads a rough life, what can I say?
He also enjoys a nice cocktail al fresco.
I love him so much, and I’m really glad he’s going to live forever.
